GIRLS LOVE RALLIE
Girls Love Rallie. If they don't already, they will after
listening to his songs. He has got the knack for writing the
catchy song. Combined with his distinctive voice that has
that dry, but clear and personal sit-down-and-let-me-tell-you-something
quality it's a treat to lend your ear to. He makes you listen.
Earlier Rallie was singer and songwriter in the slightly US
slackerrock-inspired band My Friend George. Now he struts
his stuff solo and all the while his style and songwriting
just grows stronger.

PRESS QUOTES & REVIEWS
“There is room for both evocative and discreet background organ,
strings, brass, bongos, banjo and beautiful and rough singing on the
eclectic album that is primarily driven by strong songwriting, melodiousness
and ingenuity. (...) The girls have all the reasons in the world
to love Rallie. Ten extremely lovable poprock songs of the alternative kind.”
- "Son of Rock'n'Roll" review, Gaffa, Denmark’s biggest music magazine.
“A little gem of a pop album with both sugar, edge and salt for the
ears. (...) The sadness in the lyrics are lifted up by the catchy tunes.
(...) The album contains bittersweet rock and mostly pop and enough
good melodies and hooks to make experienced pop composers envious. For example, the excellent “Remember Uncle August” whose
falsetto chorus is some of the best pop music I’ve heard in a long
time. Son of Rock’n’Roll is a fine album. It’s as simple as that.”
- "Son of Rock'n'Roll" review, Geiger, Danish music magazine.
|"Catchy alternative poprock-songs, often built up around
a basis of fierce acoustic guitar chords, bass and drums with
little, slanted melodies done with electric guitar or synthesizer.
Particularly the catchy album opener 'Pictures Of Odd', the
happy and energetic 'Forever Coming Up' and the more dreamy
'Good Cop, Bad Poetry' are successful. And as the title of
the latter reveals the album has things to offer lyrically.(...)
An album that is both charming and full of promise."

are great on this one. Really strong pop songs I reckon.
Go on... 'ave a bit will you."
|"Les Chansons Terribles" review by
Norman Records, rating: 'Happy'
"A healthy partiality for classic American lo-fi.
(...) Personally I'm delighted that "Les Chansons Terribles"
is a great album. Even though you can hear inspiration from
amongst others R.E.M., Sebadoh and Guided By Voices, there
is no question about the talent, because the album is a string
of pearls of great songs. It's that simple! (...) Favourite
songs? "Pictures of Odd", "Good Cop, Bad Poetry",
"Open Roads" - tomorrow probably other songs. Take
your pick. Every time the chords are put together it's done
with weight and the lyrics are great a mash-up of American-influenced
and personale moods and references. (...) It's done with style
- "Les Chansons Terribles" review by Danish independent music magazine Geiger.
||"Girls Love Rallie probably doesn't have the ambition
to revolutionize the history of music, but is satisfied
with interpreting good traditional songs in the verse-refrain-bridge
way in a relaxed atmosphere, while avoiding not going
too quickly. And it works! Precisely because the songs
are good. And that is not the kind of gift which one refuses."
- "Les Chansons Terribles" review, French audioblog and radioshow Rockomondo
|"It's admirable that someone takes on the Swedes in the pop game. (...) An album that fits the summer heat perfectly. (...) The tracks are surrounded by a warm and spontaneous mood, as if they are pulled out of the sleeve then and there in the moment that the record starts to spin. It's here you can feel that Rallie is in his element and is comfortable. (...) Rallie deserves big credit for his versatility. (...) The album never gets boring."
- "Les Chansons Terribles" review by Undertoner, Danish music webzine
"A whole album of well-written songs.t helt album ud med velskrevne sange. (...) The songs might not have the biggest hit potential, but the album works incredibly well as a whole. Which far from always is a given. Girls Love Rallie manages to do it and delivers an outstanding, versatile album, which is a pleasure to listen to."
